EatPlanted Vegan Chicken Pitta
Introducing Eatplanted – the plant-based meat company on a mission to change the world, one bite at a time.
Founded by a group of four friends in Switzerland, Eatplanted was born after the founders noticed that the majority of plant-based meats were filled with chemicals and additives. After discovering that yellow peas could mimic the fibrous structure of animal meat, Eatplanted was born. To make sure each product doesn't compromise on taste, Francois - a Michelin-starred chef from France was recruited to create delicious marinades.
In their factory just outside of Zurich, Eatplanted use clever tech (think a massive pasta maker) to recreate meat-like fibres; with no additives, chemicals, fillers or preservatives. Only this time, instead of flour like in pasta, Eatplanted use powdered peas, oats and sunflower protein. Not only does this mean no soy or gluten, but it also packs a protein punch (their chicken is a hefty 24g/100g!).
Their factory even comes complete with glass walls. Why? Because not only is the brand on a mission to be the world’s most transparent company, but also because where else do plants and ideas grow best, than a greenhouse.
Whether you're looking for vegan chicken, pulled pork or kebabs, Eatplanted have them all with no additives or animals in sight. Looking for recipe inspiration? The team have exclusively shared their favourite vegan Chicken Pitta recipe with a dill dressing. Perfect for meat-free Monday's.
